Wesley, did you base this on the known principles of Styrash, and the Styrash<->Tharian dictionaries?

How about a word for 'to kiss'? I was thinking something literal like a touching of mouths...though saying it out loud, it doesn't exactly sound romantic... undecided

 I'm requesting the word energy please. I can't seem to find it in the Styrash dictionary.

The term "cár'áll" means many things, among them aura, soul, but also energy, as it is the driving force of everything, it means life and activity. In the Ximaxian magic system it is mainly used for "universal magical aura/energy", though the elves wouldn't really make a difference here. So "cár'áll" is the word you seek I'd say.

Thank-you. I thought that was just the name of the magical energy. ;) Thanks.

There is a Styrash word for beautiful: avathcin
ó' is a Styrash unit that means "everlasting."

valturáey (f.) "keeper"

teláey (f.) "singer"

léy (m.) "branch"

caothán (v.) "to give birth"

caothás (f.) "birth"

caothaín (m.) "birthday"

Rayne and I agree that the word for "blood" shouldn’t be a compound. The concept is basic enough that it’d have its own word. Perhaps dúr (or diár, dáth to conform with the noun endings already on the site)?

Art, can we add -áey to the list of feminine noun endings (distinct from the masculine -éy)?

Also, I’d like to move to expand the meaning of foár "on" to include "in, upon" as well. It’s common for one preposition to express general locative meaning (cf. Spanish en or Sindarin ned).

Hello.

I have recently purchased "The Lost Road and other writings" by JRR Tolkein, which includes an elven dictionary. Therefore I will be posting quite a lot in the near future.

Ermm... Please notice that Styrásh is not Tolkien's elvish, it's our very own language. There are rules for Styrásh how endings have to look like, we construct words out of existing ones etc. And we have a bunch of words you just posted as well. So from what I see you aren't aware of any of that, M'ruk.

Oh, I thought santharia was based on tolkein. And that there were synonyms in most languages. Never mind.

From Eight Winds Bay entry (gathering together the words discussed from the following posts: Waters of Division, Elvish Names for Masterwork Entry and Eight Winds Bay (Masterwork). I hope I've got these right. :) I've copied and pasted the elvish words from the other threads to here, and then tried to explain each one.

From the thread called Waters of Division:
sysán - "to divide"

syéth (m.) - "division"

syéth'maría - "Waters of Division"

puér (m.) - "Salt"

lón - wood/forest (Art said that this word is currently "woods", but that he'd like to change it to wood/forest)

lonuá" (f.) - "wood" as in "a piece of wood"

echalonuá (f.) - "reed" (lit. wood-grass)

puér'echalonuá (f.) - "salt reeds" (lit. salt wood-grass)

From the thread called Elvish Names for Masterwork:
Unn’chrónn - "Big Island"

Gálnos’chrónn - "Rock Island"

Másyr’chrónn - 'Fish Island"

Marásh - "hurricane (lit. storm at sea causing havoc over land)"

Tuu'marásh - "Permanent storm at sea (lit. Water Turn)"

From my Masterwork Entry thread:
már'vévan - "water bird"
